Protecting our air, land and water in the 2018 Legislative Session

By January 25, 2018Climate & Energy, Legislature

Here in New Mexico, our health, economy and communities are intricately linked to the quality of our land, air and water. We must work together to protect the Land of Enchantment. That is why each legislative session, Conservation Voters New Mexico’s legislative team identifies bills that, if passed, could have significant impacts on our air, land and water. With the 30-day session underway, we’ve just released the first version of our 2018 Legislative Agenda. This is the slate of pro-conservation bills that we support and the anti-conservation bills that we oppose. We need your help to make sure all legislators are aware of these important issues.
To find out how the measures introduced in New Mexico’s legislature could impact your family and community, access our 2018 Legislative Priorities at»
The deadline to file bills is January 31. We’ll update our list of priorities again after that day, so check back often!
Our citizen legislators depend on hearing from their constituents about what matters most to them. Do you want New Mexico’s children to go to school on clean electric buses instead of dirty diesel? Do you think it’s long past time to transition to renewable energy? These are both real examples of issues being considered by legislators right now.
It’s important your legislators hear from you on issues you care about. The best way to stay informed and get up to the minute information on happenings at the Capitol, the progress of our legislative priorities and how best to weigh in with your legislators is to follow us on Twitter and Facebook. And make sure to share all our actions with your friends and family to keep the pressure on!
